The Sport & Society Research Network offers academic researchers attending the 2022 Play the Game conference a discount on the registration price for their 2022 annual conference that will take place at Aarhus University in Denmark on 30 June and 1 July.

Founded in 2010, the Sport & Society Research Network is brought together around a common interest in cultural, political, and economic relationships of sport to society. Under the heading ‘Whose Body Is it? Sport and the Problem of Autonomy’, this year’s conference will have a special focus on how the bodies of athletes are free and/or governed at all levels of sports.

Researchers from a variety of disciplines are invited to present their investigations on legal, organisational, and medical aspects on the relationship between sport, society, and athletes’ bodies, as well as research on historical legacies and socio-cultural meanings of changes in gender, race, and cultural definitions of bodies.

The conference also invites submissions on a range of other themes under the headings: Sporting cultures and identities; sport and health; sports education; and sports management and commercialisation.

To obtain your discount, please click on the ‘Play the Game’ registration option on our registration page. You will be asked to upload proof of your registration at the ‘Play the Game’ conference. Once this registration request is confirmed, you can register for the Sport & Society Conference at the discounted rate.

It takes approximately 1,5 hours to travel by train to Aarhus from Odense where Play the Game takes place from 27-30 June. Please note that Play the Game 2022 is set to continue through 30 June and organises a farewell party that evening.

For those who do not have the opportunity to travel to Denmark, the Sport & Society Research Network’s conference is offered in a blended format with session types that are explicitly designed to make the most of both online and in-person presences. Learn more at the conference website.
